PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – The Woodland Hills head football coach joined 93.7 The Fan’s John Phillips–an original Woodland Hills alumnus–Saturday to talk about the 2011 Wolverines.
Novak’s team is coming off a 31-13 loss to top-ranked Pittsburgh Central Catholic at The Wolvarena in Turtle Creek Friday night, as heard here on 93.7 The Fan in our “UPMC Centers for Rehab Services Game of the Week.” It kept the Vikings in first place in the Class AAAA Big East Conference, and left Woodland Hills in fourth with a 1-1 conference record and 3-1 overall mark.
He tells John that the high praise the local media has heaped upon Central Catholic has been well deserved, and gives his impressions of their senior tailback, Damion Jones-Moore. He also talks about some of the top players he’s coached in the first quarter-century of the program’s existence, and names some of the top players on opposing teams he’s ever seen.
In addition, Novak reflects upon the events that brought him to the newly-formed Woodland Hills program in the late 1980s, and some of his proudest moments as its head coach, and he also addresses rumors of his retirement after this season…
Woodland Hills visits Altoona in Big East Conference play next Friday.
